This is a “connection-centered” parenting group that’s been around for more than twenty years. They have lots of articles on their websites regarding parenting in a gentle, connected manner. They host free teleseminars and free study groups as well. Some of their approach: “Parenting by Connection foundations:

  • When children feel connected, they learn readily, love easily, and become caring leaders among their peers. A healthy parent-child connection enables a child to fully access his intelligence and ability.
  • When parents feel connected with their children and with other parents, they have greater success at solving problems at the heart of family and community life. Parenting becomes more fun, and more rewarding.
  • When children’s behavior goes “off track,”

Parents can use the tools of Special Time, Playlistening, Setting Limits or Staylistening to rebuild the connection with their children. The child offloads stress, reconnects, and can then make thoughtful decisions and learn from his experience.
  • When emotional stress sends parents’ behavior “off track,” they need the support of a listener who appreciates how much they care and how hard they try. Parents need the safety to offload feelings that interfere with their ability to guide their children with love and sensible limits, kindly held.”
